    So I was out in the yard with my camera and happened to see a Beetle buzzing around the girls. I saw one of the Buff's eyeing it and then saw her come in for the kill so I decided to film it.

    No the feed is a dry organic that they have at a local feed store. We do have some oats that I have been meaning to try sprouting.
     
  7. My wet feed happens naturally... When we get hard summer rains! Lol. its funny tho, they actuallg seem to enjoy it more wet. :hmm

    Mine love their dry feed mixed with water, Braggs Red Apple Cider Vinegar w/ the mother, brown sugar, wheat gluten. And spouted seeds and grains mixed together and let sit for three days with just a stir in the morning and a stir at night covered with a wet towel. I resently started the fermented feed. They smell it and start singing. I dont like the smell and it looks terrible but they love it. Still have that Belgium Bantam Boy.
